Giants | Chris Heston demoted

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 17:20:10 -0700

San Francisco Giants P Chris Heston has been optioned to Class AAA Sacramento. He began the season as a long reliever but will be used as a starting pitcher in the minors.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants want to stretch Heston out in case he is needed in the parent club's rotation and they also believe he will be able to use his side sessions to gain more confidence in his mechanics. The 28-year-old went 12-11 with a 3.95 ERA in 31 starts last year in a season that was highlighted by a no-hitter against the New York Mets. However, he struggled with his control this year in a bullpen role, allowing six runs on nine hits over five innings in four appearances, with twice as many walks as strikeouts. Heston is only worth monitoring in NL-only fantasy leagues at this point.

Giants | Matt Cain has arm surgery

Thu, 25 Feb 2016 09:38:10 -0800

San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain (arm) had surgery to remove a cyst in his upper arm Thursday, Feb. 25, but the Giants aren't ruling out his availability for the start of the regular season, according to general manager Bobby Evans. Cain is expected to resume throwing again in 10 days. Cain had the cyst removed over winter, too, but it was drained and then returned. SP Chris Heston could slide into the rotation if Cain isn't ready.

Fantasy Tip: Cain is fading quickly because of multiple injuries the last several seasons. He was a shell of his former self when he returned last year, and his velocity was at an all-time low. At this point he might be a long shot to stay healthy and productive. Keep him confined to NL-only leagues.

Giants | Tim Lincecum unlikely to re-sign

Tue, 02 Feb 2016 11:03:45 -0800

Free-agent SP Tim Lincecum (Giants) is unlikely to re-sign with the San Francisco Giants with their starting rotation already full. Lincecum could, however, be considered for a bullpen role as he recovers from hip surgery. SP Chris Heston, who made 31 starts for the Giants last year, also appears headed for a bullpen role.

Fantasy Tip: Injury concerns are Lincecum's biggest hurdle heading into the 2016 season, and he'll likely sign somewhere for plenty of incentives. There's no guarantee he'll be a starter again wherever he lands, and there's plenty of fantasy risk surrounding him in NL-only leagues.
